Money can buy everything ?

iyANphMoney can buy everything…more often and more we all must have heard this quote from some one or the other. A sentence that probably has screwed many people’s lives or even made people live miserably. With this quote in mind, many are on their journey to make hell lot of money, sacrificing their present, sacrificing their time, sacrificing many tangible, non-tangible beautiful stuff in life, to make hell lot of money. There is nothing wrong in making a lot of money – but believing that money can buy everything has made many people go crooked over years and years now.

This is certainly a myth or misconception, if I may say, and does not hold any good. Neither it has ever been nor will it ever be. Money was introduced as a means for trade – pure trade. There is various understanding of money from historical data – but certainly it is not something that could buy everything. You certainly cannot trade love, nor happiness, peace or even a feeling – in true sense. If you say, buying sex is buying love, then the whole understanding of love is wrong. Similarly people talk about happiness in luxury, which again is a temporary trigger of emotions – yes just that. Luxury doesn’t bring happiness in one’s life. It does bring satisfaction due to fulfillment of a want, it does bring in excitement about new expensive stuffs, it does create a feeling of richness
and power, it might bring in more comfort – but does that really bottom down to happiness?? Is sleeping on a diamond embedded bed happiness ? Is riding/driving the most expensive vehicle happiness? Is having a filthy bank balance happiness ? Is money happiness? These answers needs to be sorted by you.

In contrast everything that gives happiness, love and peace is NOT at all dependant on money. Money is just a medium to buy things. We have made it too important in our life, way too important. People kill for money today. Is someone’s life worth any rupee or dollars? Indeed not!! But someone somewhere believes money can buy everything and this idea only brings misery and trouble. Nobody is ready for any monetary loss, or I would say 99% of the crowd will fall off their feet thinking of losing money. The attachment with money has become pretty intense. Money comes and goes- this should not hamper one’s sleep/relationship/happiness or even peace. But this is exactly what is happening. And if you further drill down the last 2 lines – the issue is more explosive because of the present lifestyle people are living- most people.

“Money can buy a big house, but not a home. Money can buy a high position, but not  respect. Money even can buy a person, but not love. In conclusion, money is an indispensable part in our life but it is not everything “-even Google showed this (This was a result of my search for a picture to add to my article – “Money can buy anything” 🙂 )

Most people who are rich and happy- are the ones who don’t bother much about money- rather they are more focused to more important things than money. Interestingly money follows them!!

Unfortunately we are living in a system today that shouts from all corners- making us realize that all those luxuries/things that are not important in our life is so much important to us- to buy- and everything costs $$$$ ONLY !!!!

Know Your Mind – For Success & Happiness

Everybody wants to be successful, everybody wants to be happy, everybody wants almost everything in life. Ok so i say all this is possible, Yes a 110% possible.

Question is how ? The society has its own definition of success & happiness and gives an age old framework to all to work onto and to find a fit in it. They say – study and work hard and you would be successful, they say get good marks and come 1st in the race and success cannot be far. Our education system and society gives us a creepy understanding of success and ways that it could be achieved. No weightage is given to mind or even spoken of. And without the understanding of our mind and its capabilities or even how it functions we stray everywhere trying to be successful and happy. Result – 98% of people fail and a large chunk fail miserably. This 98% also includes people who have made money and many times fame too but they are the ones who also think they are yet not successful or happy.

Where have the things went wrong then ? May be the understanding of success and happiness is wrong at the first place OR may be one really couldn’t understand the mind – the way it functions and its importance in achieving success and happiness. Every successful person has a clear, calm mind and they are the same people who are happy too. A person who claims success and still has a disturbed mind, is really not successful. Success is something that brings a completeness to a person –  in heart, in mind and all.Success need not be an end point, it could be the journey it could be the path itself. So how you define success is very very important. A deluded mind fails to define and understand what success is. So before you start your journey to success and happiness, you need to understand your mind – the most powerful tool you carry within you.

Mind- is the psychic organ. Your everyday behavior, choices that you make, reasoning, awareness – all this and more is a result of your mind. So its important for you to keep your mind healthy and prosperous. The mind, like any other organ gets fed, needs exercise and needs rest.

— The mind feeds on processed information or raw information from the outside world – as the first step, understand whats getting fed in, screen whats not helpful or necessary and take the one that is important. Thoughts may pop from nowhere – be conscious enough to know which thought to follow – is this thought really worth rite now ? will this thought bring me closer to my dream ? is this thought worth spending my time on ? Ask these whenever a thought arise, check what your mind is getting engaged into. — All organs require exercise and rest to work to its best potential and so does your mind. Take out time for mind exercises – these could be from hearing music, creative work, puzzle etc. Rest is required as much for your mind as it is for other organs – good sleep and mediation helps immensely.

Once you get an understanding of mind as a psychic organ learn to control this amazingly powerful tool to get success and happiness in your life. Do not let mind play around with you – a simple play is worry – what is worry ? is it real ?  – Worry again is thought that gets popped up, so refrain from these thoughts.

Mind-Energy-Free-Thinking-Brain-Waves-ConsciousnessAll thoughts manifest – TRUE and this is the reason i emphasize the importance of mind in the journey of success and happiness . Good or Bad – thoughts manifest, so its very very important for all to know what thoughts they are engaging with. Thoughts that get focused on, that take majority of your attention are more likely to happen.

It is as much important for you to get educated about your mind as much it is to know your body, your environment – rather it is far more important to understand the mind. If not understood properly, it can bring enough sadness, enough worry, enough destruction in ones life. The road to success becomes a road to disaster for many, the road to happiness becomes a road to sadness for many. On other hand – know your mind and touch the bliss that every moment carries for you, know your mind and capture dreams that you thought were impossible, know your mind and touch true happiness that lies within.
